Here are the Winter landscapes my kids did today. We used water paints for the sky, a watered down coffee mixture as the land and a brown ink for the trees, (the white represents snowa). I dripped the ink and the kiddos used straws to blow the ink around to create their leafless trees. Very abstract I thought, but they had lots of fun and I know this because they had lots of mess to clean up (: We are going to publish our Winter acrostic poems tomorrow and then display them with our paintings. Can't wait.
